SFL is a 501C3 nonprofit organization founded in 2004. Our mission is the prevention and early detection of colon cancer. This mission is accomplished through a variety of educational programs directed at increasing awareness of colon cancer among both healthcare providers and the general population. Included are the programs of public education, wide scale screening initiatives and risk reduction strategies directed toward populations at risk.

Dylan Cappel-Strides for Life:

The Strides for Life Organization was founded in honor of Dylan Cappel. Dylan died of colon cancer at the age of 23, while training for a berth of the 2004 U.S. Olympic Rowing Team.
